I’m very excited to announce this: |Cine|Sonic| gets the centre stage at Lowlands Festival 2012, the most important music festival in The Netherlands!
SUNDAY 19TH OF AUGUST – 15:10 – ECHO TENT – LOWLANDS CINEMA BIDDINGHUIZEN
The legendary last film of F. W. Murnau’s TABU will be screened with a brand new surf rock score by Dutch surf rock legends THE ANACONDAS.
Dir. F. W. Murnau | Germany | 1931 | 81 min |
Murnau’s TABU brings the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ tale in Polynesia, where the drama of a young couple unfolds. Two lovers are doomed when the girl is chosen as ‘holy maid’ and declared “tabu” to all men by a tribal edict.Unlike his landmark expressionist titles such as Nosferatu and Faust, TABU is filmed in sunny Tahiti and features gorgeous tropical landscapes and dazzling underwater images.
THE ANACONDAS play kick ass, spaced out, groovy, reverb drenched and heavily surf influenced rock ‘n’ roll but left out the singing. Witness to believe!
If you are the lucky owner of a festival ticket, come and join us on sunday, lay back and enjoy the sea the sun the surf!
Established in 2007, |CINE|SONIC| is a project of Stichting Film en Media Festival Amsterdam that aims at combining silent feature films, experimental shorts and video-art compilations with cutting edge music producers.
|CINE|SONIC| presents a regular program of live screenings at Goethe Institute Amsterdam and has organised special events hosted by various film and music festivals (Lowlands, 5 Days Off, Rocket Cinema..) and venues in Amsterdam and Rotterdam (Paradiso, Melkweg, Rabozaal, EYE Film Insitute, NIMK, Lantaren Venster..).
The concept behind |CINE|SONIC| is to offer musicians and sound artists complete freedom to interact with shorts or feature films that were created with the presence of a leading musical element (silent films, experimental shorts, videoart compositions etc).
Each selected artist is given the opportunity to create a new sonic dimension for the selected film or video by combining live music with the screened visual content. Through these creative encounters new dynamics between audio and visual elements are explored and revealed.
Each |CINE|SONIC| event is unique and distinguishes itself from other live cinema events by an accentuation of the live performance aspect. The mix of film screening and live music adds a whole new dimension to the familiar practices of ‘watching a film’ and ‘listening to music’, creating an intriguing experience during which the audience can rediscover a number of everlasting film classics, discover the work of cutting edge musicians or simply experience cinema and live music as a whole.
